Bas Rutten MMA career
I just got this 3DVD set.
(available from www.basrutten.tv and www.sherdog.com)
It's great, and actually shows someone growing in their MMA game.
It contains every MMA fight he's ever had (not his kickboxing matches) - the 2 UFC matches are highlights only though...
The early fights show him as a good kickboxer. But he doesn't have and ground game at all. Literally, he doesn't know anything once he is taken to the ground. He just flops around.
A few matches in he figures out what a guillotine choke is, and starts trying to do that every time someone goes for a takedown.
As the matches progress through the years, you see his ground game get better and better until he is going for armbars, leglocks, etc.
Bas has actually gone back and done commentary over the matches, and it's funny to hear him constantly bagging on himself about various things.
Its also great to see early matches from legends like Vernon White, Ken Shamrock, Frank Shamrock, Maurice Smith, etc....

You are my new hero Finger. Ever since the clip was shown I've been trying to find those tapes and I refuse to support Sherdog anymore.

The Bas Rutten website actually has some pretty good deals for his other stuff as well when you buy as a package.
I would have taken advantage of it...but, um, I've already bought everything he's put out...The Wastrel - So attractive he HAS to be a woman.
